BCE Hoops Info

Updated Monday April 4, 2016 by BCE Sports.

BCE Hoops provides recreational leagues for Boys AND Girls basketball players of all skill levels and experiences. This program allows children to play up to twice a week (typically 2 practices pre-season and 2 games during season). Teams will play against other teams within BCE Hoops' age divisions.

Tryouts are mandatory to play within BCE Hoops, due to skills assessments that will help with accurate player rankings for teams to be autodrafted. They will be held April 14 & 15 at the Rock Gym from 6:00-8:00 PM and Saturday, April 16, from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM. Players are only required to attend one tryout date for assessment.

The focus at this level is to promote development, sportsmanship, fun, and a greater enjoyment of basketball.  Depending on the amount of teams and standings, most teams will qualify for playoffs at the end of the season.

As part of the registration fee, players will be assigned to a team and BCE Hoops will provide a team uniform which will consist of a shirt/jersey.  Players are required to wear athletic shorts and comfortable basketball/running shoes.

All players will be autodrated based upon tryout performance rankings. Special requests and considerations for players to play on specific teams or preferred players/coaches will not be met, unless players from the same household are in the same division. BCE Hoops personnel will modify teams per same household players and players of coaches (so each team will be have a coach paired with their child) to ensure an even playing field for an optimized player experience.

Upon special request or due to special circumstances, players may be assigned to divisions outside their age group if deemed necessary to fulfil the requirements of a full roster, upon approval of the BCE Hoops Boys or Girls League President.  Any player wishing to play out of their own age group must submit a formal request in writing to their BCE Hoops League President for review and consideration.
